We could have changed the world. Now...look at us. I've become...a political liability...and you...you're a joke. I want you...to remember, Clark...in all the years to come...in your most private moments...I want you to remember...my hand...at your throat. I want...you to remember...the one man who beat you.
Hal Jordan. Green Lantern. That Ring of his is the most powerful known weapon in the galaxy. If he thinks something up--it just plain happens. That makes him the Milky Way's top cop. His alien mentor was looking for a man of superhuman will and a man without fear. The mentor's job description for Hal didn't seem to factor in smarts. He's as dumb as a post. I've seen more intelligent hocky pucks. The clown makes oversized eggbeaters and mouse traps and vacuum cleaners--when he could set the whole world straight with that ring. What a damn idiot. The things I'd do with power like that...it's such a damn waste. He's worse than Kent. Whoa. Here comes a big flashlight. Very inventive, Emerald Crusader.
